Hello!

I wanna ask you guys for help with this program. Here is my problem explanation: I want that user gives an input in the beginning of the program how big should tictactoe board would be. For example: input: 4 so board would be 4x4.

Code of the current problem is:

Thanks for the help in advance.

You need a dynamic array or a vector to do this in a non-ghetto way. Do you know how to use those?

Sorry I don't :( If you could help me, I would really appreciate it! Thanks for reply.

Hello!

I wanna ask you guys for help with this program. Here is my problem explanation: I want that user gives an input in the beginning of the program how big should tictactoe board would be. For example: input: 4 so board would be 4x4.

Code of the current problem is:

``Lots of uncommentted code``

Thanks for the help in advance.

Help with what? A problem statement and code does not explain the problem you are having.

And Greywolf333 is almost correct. While you do not need dynamic arrays, you really do need arrays.

I need an program, that ask user at the beginning how big board should be... If he inputs 4 then the board should be 4x4... This is only problem that haunts me :) Thanks for help.

Why does that haunt you? It will mean starting the code over, but you already know how to do a lot of it thanks to the code you posted.

Input n
Use a loop from 0 to n-1 to output your n rows.
Inside that, use another loop to output your n columns.
